TOR KENWARD

Location: California, Napa Valley usa
TOR-JeffTor Kenward spent 27 years as a senior executive with Beringer Vineyards working in winemaking and marketing, helping to build a wine company known to collectors worldwide for its outstanding Reserve and single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons. He retired in 2001, and along with his wife Susan, started TOR Kenward Family Wines, a small wine company based on single vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons and Chardonnays. The winemaking at TOR is driven by the same philosophy: constantly striving for the best, whatever it takes.

Tor Kenward Family wines is a small production of single vineyard wines made from the best lots of the best vineyards. Each vintage only a few barrerls are made of each wine, allowing Tor to pay extreamely close attention to the entire process of making each wine from vine to bottle. The winemaking is done in a minimalist style, natural yeasts, no fining or filtering. Every effort is made to allow these great vineyard sites to express their unique characteristics in each wine. Tor also works exclusively with small cooperage houses in France to ensure they have the best barrels. All the fruit is hand sorted, and his wines are crafted in very small cuvées to receive minimal handling. Tor's philosophy is "If we harvest what we consider world-class grapes, our job as winemakers is to stay out of the way. That takes experience and patience, but can be very rewarding when it all comes together".

Tor's years of experience and in-depth of knowledge of the entire Valley are an enormous asset when it comes to sourcing the his vineyards and winemaking decisions. Since 2001, Tor has been working with winemaker Jeff Ames, who's passion for winemakeing is second to none. The combination of passion, experience and knowledge they share is the driving force behind Tor's wies. Tor and Jeff have a remarkable chemistry with each other and it certainly reflects in the wine, as they continue to consistantly strive to produce the highest quality wines year after year, which is exactly what they have accomplished.
